What do you enjoy about LFG: LOVE seeing the guys every event, watching everyone improve week in & week out. Couple beers with the boys after the round is my favorite part!

Favorite Course: Wickenburg Ranch, Phoenix Az. 

LFG Event Champion: No 

Most memorable golf story: My favorite story involving golf is… 2 guys sneak into line @ the 16th hole @ the wastey… Jamie Ahlgren & Dustin Arruda can tell the rest. Unreal day.

Perfect foursome, Kevin Kisner, Tiger Woods, Rory Mcelroy. Obviously there would be many cocktails shared. 

Worst golf memory: Playing a match with 3 other guys, kid hits a ball out of a bunker into the woods, gets pissed we didn’t watch his ball, walks off on the 13th hole. Doesn’t say bye, not a word, just walks away. Weird AF.

Favorite club: 2 Iron

Part of the game to fix: Driver, driver, driver. Need to get the ball with a driver off the tee in play. I’ll be working on that for the next 40 years or so. 😂

Rounds per month: 7 or more

 

 

 

Quick look at the map to see what States are still allowing golf

Screen+Shot+2020-03-31+at+10.29.40+AM

Few Main Points

—As of March 27, 2020 an estimated 74% of in-season U.S. golf courses remain open despite the coronavirus pandemic.

—Golf rounds were up significantly (+15.2%) thru February.

—Core golfers who were planning on equipment purchases now suggest they’ll simply delay. We’ll continue to monitor this sentiment.

—Roughly 35% of independent/regional golf retailers remain open.

The one genuinely confounding finding no matter how you feel about whether golf should be played right now: the number of surveyed courses NOT restricting access to confined spaces beyond the 87% for dining areas:
